    Ausphotography National Meets 2013 (Planning thread)

    With the suggestion we again have a national meets weekend, I thought the starting of a thread to get all the basic plans together might be helpful.

    My initial suggestion here would be that we consider a weekend in October. All the winter sports finals will be over and less of a distraction for many. Those states that move to daylight savings will have that in place, and it also is not so close to the end of the year that it will interfere with other festive season commitments etc. It will also give us plenty of planning time between now and the events actually taking place.

    Once we have the calendar sorted, we can start looking at other aspects of the meets for each State/Region. Come up with ideas for an inter-meet challenge or three.

    All ideas re when it will take place and other aspects of the meets are welcome in this discussion. Once we reach agreement on the overall meet dates, etc we can create threads in each AP member State for members in each state/region to start planning their own event, what they do, where they go, etc.

    So please feel free to have your say in this thread.

    October long weekend might be the go, Rick. That would give the workers an extra day for any planned activity. Just a suggestion though.

    Sounds interesting, I'll follow the thread with interest.

    For us Uni students, our best time would probably be late November and beyond (after exams), however the best week in October would probably be week ending the 6th (Mid semester holdiay of 1 week).
    Cheers, Troy
